Late night call, collect from Arkansas
She said, brother I need your help
She said, there's this boy
And I could by the crack in her voice
She was in real trouble and all by herself
She said, I don't want to be a burden
It's not your problem
Maybe I should just hang up
After all, we're years apart and not much in common
And we haven't kept in touch

And I said, I may have moved away
And I know that on the day I left
I let you down
But you're still my baby sister
So always remember, it's by blood that we are bound
I may be here, but I'll always be there for you

I know it's bad, but you gotta tell Mom and Dad
You don't have to do this all alone
If I leave right now, I should be there by morning
And we can tell them together when I get home
We'll talk and pray and cry a little
We'll work this thing out
We'll do whatever it takes
We'll stand beside you, try to guild you
That's what familys about
But it's your decision to make

Six months later on a Sunday morning
That baby girl was born
And we all stood in wonder around the bed
Looking at her that little pink sleeper
I knew in my heart that she wanted to keep her
But God had a bigger plan instead

A young couple came and I heard my sister say
I just wanna give my child the life that she deserves
We all held hands
Then hse handed her to them
And we all cried as she whispered these words

I'll think about you every day
I'm only giving you away 'cause I can't raise you now
I brought you into this world
You'll always be my little girl
It's by blood that we are bound
I may be here, but I'll always be there for you

    I was adopted when i ws born. My adopted parents told me when i was eight and from that i felt lke my whole life was a lie. I gave my parents hell. For 18 years now they've been my family and that'll never change. I love them. I recently found my biological mother and i am finding out where came from and her side of the story. My bio dad was never in the picture but i've also found my siblings on that side. When i heard the end of this song specificaly, i cried. I felt like maybe, just maybe, my mom said that to me. This song touched me and it also shown a new light on things that happen through the moms life, the reality of pregnancy and having loved ones care, and the truth that mothers suffer while giving someone else a blessing. God works mericals and he blessed my bio mom with strength to give me up and to not come find me later to take me away from two people who were struggling because they couldn't have a child of their own. He blessed my parents and me when they adopted me. Never take anything in your life for ganted, you never know who's longing to have what you have.
